World Cup 2022 Game By Game Schedule

World Cup 2022 Tickets

The draw for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been made and it throws up some interesting scenarios, especially at the knock-out stages.

The U.S. finds itself in Group B with England, Iran and the winner of the playoff in UEFA that involves Wales taking on the winner of the semifinal in that pod between Scotland and Ukraine. The US starts with Wales/Scotland/Ukraine, a must-win game if they are to have any hope off progressing before playing England and finishing up with Iran. Six points will be enough to progress, while four might do.

Should the U.S. manage to finish second in Group B, a matchup against the Group A winner, most likely the Netherlands, beckons. But if the U.S. can repeat its feat from 2010 and top the group, a tough matchup against one of hosts Qatar, Ecuador and Senegal, with its superstar trio of Sadio Mane, Edouard Mendy and captain Kalidou Koulibaly, awaits. Getting past any one of those teams and reaching the quarterfinals, where a matchup with Argentina is possible, would be a magnificent accomplishment.

But that is getting ahead of ourselves. The fact that the U.S. will play on the opening day of the tournament complicates the team’s preparations. Berhalter said that a pre-tournament camp in Dubai had to be scrapped because teams need to be in Qatar five days ahead of their first game, and players will only be released a week prior to the start of the World Cup.

That will require the U.S. making the most of the two remaining international windows in June and September. In June, the U.S. has two games in the CONCACAF Nations League, for which Berhalter said he would bring in his full team, and two friendlies.

The tournament will run over one month, with the final scheduled for December 18 and with a 6pm local time kick-off.
